    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/...ijuana-washington-colorado-doj_n_3837034.html WASHINGTON -- The United States government took a historic step back from its long-running drug war on Thursday, when Attorney General Eric Holder informed the governors of Washington and Colorado that the Department of Justice would allow the states to create a regime that would regulate and implement the ballot initiatives that legalized the use of marijuana for adults.

    The problem isn't the feds, it's the banks. They wont accept cash that is tainted in pot dust. The shops have to have a sterile technique to deal with sales now or not use a bank. Considering a good deal of money in the u s has either traces of coke or pot on them, it makes it a sticky situation come deposit time....excuse the pun.

    ...this is huge. the article is about Washington and colorados legal weed laws not about californias medical weed. this can only be good for every state with medicinal mj as its a huge first domino. meanwhile the police haven't responded to "someones smoking weed" calls in Washington for a decade now. there were medical shops here busted by the dea about 3 weeks ago but it wasn't for selling medicinal mj it was for tax evasion. you cant claim a 28k yearly income and live on a 52' boat. it sends up a red flag.

    ...they wont refuse the money here now that its legal. they did for a while until people took steps to clean the smell off the money. if they do someone will open up a credit union for it. if bank of America doesn't want to continue being the money grubbing assholes they are because of the smell of the money then I can only see this as a plus.
